Question about this forum : is it like Ning, in that I can reply to the post at top, or to the current post ?
Am inspired to launch a replication of the ConnectedCourses blog/twitter hub, for my new course, also my first time teaching doctoral students
(syllabus is now approved -- don't know if it's of interest to anyone : Creative Critical Reflection : Making a Way for Ouirselves)
***** what package/tier/rank to sign up for at ReClaim?
I'll be teaching just one (1) course (so far), for 10 (ten) weeks, from January thru March. I'll want to host a wordpress blog that enables (RSS'es?) aggregation of students' hubs into one place, and can also display tweets with the course hashtag. Just like CCourses --Plus, I'll add a forum ( Caucus ? ), altho' the campus uses Canvas LMS (which is also new to me) , which seems to have a forum, which I haven't tried yet. Hope to have occasional Group Teleconferences (Google hangout ?) Plus some assignments with wiki, Goodreads, etc.
I lead a life of voluntary simplicity so wonder what's the cheapest rate, for this ... but maybe I should take that up with ReClaim ....
Then I'll try out Alan Levine's instructions for set-up, this week. (I'm not a geek, and get easily flustered/overwhelmed, until I master it. I don't have a cellphone, I don't drive. & am typing on a computer that's 10 years old ... (upgrading to a MacBook Pro or Air ... another question, for further on ) I get by with the kindness of colleagues ...
